New accessible amenities at Moree Racecourse

19 Apr 2024

Moree Racecourse will be more accessible and parent-friendly allowing it to cater for growing crowds of race and event goers following a $748,743 investment by the NSW Government to expand its on-site amenities.

A new amenities block for the racecourse, funded by Crown Lands and constructed by contractors Shay Brennan Constructions, includes nine unisex toilets and a large disability-access toilet.  

The bathrooms have changing bay facilities for parents with young children, ensuring families can stay and enjoy events at the racecourse for longer. New automated lights have also been installed, boosting security and accessibility at the site.  

The new amenities block replaced an ageing structure which was built in 1975 and was no longer fit-for-purpose, with the facilities struggling to accommodate crowds of visitors. 

Moree Race Club secretary Michelle Gobbert said the old amenities block was in desperate need of upgrading. 

“The building was quite old and struggled to cope with the sheer volume of visitors we’d receive during some of our events.

“The new facilities are a real asset to our racecourse and will boost race day experiences for all our patrons.”

Minister for Lands and Property Steve Kamper said the local race club at Moree feature of the town for over 100 years.

“A day at the races is a popular social event for many regional communities.”

“Facilities on Crown land, like Moree Racecourse, bring people together and foster strong, cohesive communities. Our investment in the new accessible amenities block means people of all ages and abilities will be able to enjoy a day at the racers with better convenience and comfort.”
